New Construction Sells in West Coconut Grove for $700,000+

3 beds/3 baths | 2,300 sf | built in 2015 | sold for $729,000 ($317/sf) on 5/29/15

If you’ve been following this blog for some time, you may recall my West Coconut Grove Market Update from about six months back.  At that time, new construction sales had yet to break $700k (as per MLS data), unlike their counterparts in Center Grove which were selling at prices well above that number.  Now, we’re seeing sales in the West Grove reaching $707,000 and $729,000, and a handful of properties with asking prices above $700k are currently pending.  These sales are also notable because they reached $307/sf and $317/sf, whereas the average sales price per square foot in the neighborhood is generally in the $100-$200 range.

If the above photo looks familiar, that’s because you’ve seen me post about other notable sales from this particular developer over the past year.  It should come as no surprise then that both of these $700,000+ sales were from the very same developer.  This new construction model has cropped up all over the Grove, from Orange Street to McDonald to Day Avenue and now Elizabeth Street.  A property on Elizabeth just closed for $729,000 ($317/sf), and a property on Day closed for $707,000 ($307/sf), thus raising the bar (and property values) in the West Grove.  The listing agent for both sales was Silvia Boschetti with BH Realty, LLC.     I have toured these properties multiple times and can attest to their high end designer finishes and open floor plan, ultra-modern fixtures, floor-to-ceiling impact glass, fenced-in backyard with pool, and 950 square foot private rooftop terrace (see photos below).

p907627754-43103 Oak Ave., Miami, FL 33133
3 bedrooms/2.5 bathrooms | 2,200 sf | Built in 2004 | $639,000

You may remember this beautiful Coconut Grove townhouse that I listed last fall.  Well, it’s back on the market and priced to sell!  The asking price is $639,000 (or $290/sf) which is a very competitive price for the neighborhood.

Built in 2004, this 2-story townhouse is located in the heart of Center Grove, just steps to Cocowalk!  The property has 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms and a half bath on the main level.  The home features gated entry with a one car garage, foyer entrance, marble floors throughout the living areas and bamboo floors in the bedrooms, and a sparkling kitchen with granite counters and stainless steel appliances. The master suite features a walk-in closet with built-ins and a balcony with room to enjoy your morning coffee.

Just Listed: Beautiful and Bright 1 Bed/1.5 Bath Unit in 1060 Brickell

balconyleft_1200
1060 Brickell Ave. #2505
1 bedroom/1.5 baths | 963 sf of living space | Offered for rent at $2,350/month

I just listed this gorgeous 1 bedroom/1.5 bathroom rental in 1060 Brickell!   This unit is located in the “05 line” on the 25th floor, which overlooks Brickell Ave. and boasts beautiful water views.  It is one of the largest 1-bedroom floor plans in the building and has 963 square feet of living space.  The unit is being offered at $2,350 per month.

The unit is in impeccable condition and includes the following features:

  • Sparkling white porcelain tile floors throughout the living areas and bedroom, and marble floors in the bathrooms.
  • Hurricane impact glass windows and doors.
  • Large terrace with plenty of room for al-fresco dining, and the balcony floor is also tiled.
  • The interior layout includes a dining area off of the kitchen as well as a powder room for your guests.
  • Spacious living room has sheer shades on the sliding glass doors, and is large enough for a designated office area.
  • Kitchen has generous counter space and features stainless steel Bosch appliances, granite countertops, and European cabinets, as well as a laundry closet with stackable washer/dryer and extra storage.
  • Master bedroom has a nice-sized walk-in closet with shelving as well as custom blackout shades.
  • Master bathroom has marble floors and countertops, a marble-tiled shower wall, and the shower has a tub with a glass door enclosure.
  • Rental payment includes 1 assigned parking space in the garage, water/sewer and garbage, as well as basic cable.

Although I may be biased because I lived in the building for 3 years, 1060 Brickell is my favorite building in Brickell! It’s a newer building, completed in 2008, and consists of two towers (1050 and 1060), for a total of 570 units. The building has a beautiful pool and gym, complete with a yoga/aerobics room, steam rooms, showers and locker rooms. Unique amenities include a virtual golf room featuring an indoor golf simulator, Wine/Cigar lounge outfitted with temperature-controlled wine and storage cabinets and personal humidors for cigars, and a game room with a billiards table. The building has 24 hour doorman security, 24 hour valet parking, as well as ground-floor and mezzanine level retail and restaurants.  Best of all is the location – with Mary Brickell Village and the Metromover in your backyard, you can leave your car in the garage all weekend – no driving necessary!

Market Update: West Coconut Grove Townhouses

IMG_3467

3373 Day Avenue, Miami, FL 33133
3 beds/3 baths | 2,300 sf | New Construction/Built in 2014 | Sold for $690,000

With 2014 coming to a close, I decided to take a look at the market activity this year in the “West Grove” townhouse market (aka the neighborhood of Center Grove that sits west of McDonald/32nd Ave.) – and it’s clear that things are heating up!  Earlier this month, a new construction townhouse (pictured above) located at 3373 Day Ave. sold for $690,000 ($300/sf).   Other notable sales in the neighborhood this year included a pair of new construction townhouses which sold in June for $679,000 each, and are located at 3407 and 3409 Day Ave.  Another sale nearly broke $700k – a townhome at 3060 Indiana St. sold for $695,000 in August.

Looking at the market data below, as well as all of the new construction that continues to break ground in this neighborhood, it’s clear that buyers and developers alike are bullish on the future of the West Grove.  Not to mention that buying new construction in the West Grove gets you a discount of nearly $100k!  Did I mention that two townhouses identical to the property pictured above sold on Orange St. in Center Grove for $780,000 and $760,000 in October?  Here are a few drool-worthy shots of these newly constructed properties.:

New Details on Park Grove via the Miami Herald

ParkGrove_Brochure31

Coincidentally, the Miami Herald ran an article on Park Grove shortly after my blog post yesterday.    The article reveals new details on the 5.2 acre project, including that the two 20-story bayfront towers (Tower 1 and 2) will each have 72 units, and that the third tower (also 20-stories) will have 140 smaller units toward the rear of the property.   The bayfront towers will have floor-to-ceiling glass exterior walls with 12-foot ceilings, and the rear tower (Tower 3) will have 10-foot ceilings.

The Herald also reports that only one of the two bayfront towers is open for reservations, and about 30 percent of the units have sold since May.  The rear tower, which began taking reservations three weeks ago, is about 20 percent sold.   Construction is expected to begin early next year.  As for prices, the bayfront tower currently for sale is priced in excess of $1,000 per square foot, ranging from about $2.1 million for a 2-bedroom, 2 1/2-bath unit to about $4.6 million for a 4-bedroom, 5 1/2-bath unit, excluding penthouses.  Tower 3, which will have smaller units, is about $900 a square foot.

The project also includes a scheduled “major public-private makeover” of the waterfront, a new park, as well as a 50,000-square-foot “retail village” at the rear of the property by Mary Street and Tigertail Avenue.  It is also reported that the project will include a variety of artwork, notably a sculpture installation by Spanish artist Jaume Plensa that will be displayed in front of the development.
